First Bull Moose With Bow
It was Thanksgiving Day 2011 in Elk Point AB around 10 AM, a friend and I were spotting and stalking when we spotted a young bull moose in a grain field. I was trying to get my first bull moose with a bow.
We went to attempt a stalk and got busted by our scent. The young moose ran for cover in the bush so we let him go.
Thought we should go back to the road we were traveling. Not 1 mile back the road there he was stood up.
I got out of truck and ranged him at 35 yards. Nocked an arrow and drew back the arrow when the arrow fell off my rest.
I thought that would be the end of the hunt when the moose went to run, my friend grunted at him to stop and he did so. I got another chance to draw my bow and let it fly.
Hit him 4 inches behind the front leg and knew i made a good shot. He ran about 50 yards stopped and spewing blood everywhere he ran again for another 50 yards where he ran into some bush.
While taking my time to go find him I could hear him cracking and breaking trees so I waited for him to lay down but didn't know he was laying down to expire.
Gave him 10 min and went to see my prize and could not believe my eyes. The bull was fully expired and I just yelled to the loudest I could, "let the rage out of it's cage". The most thrilling day of my hunting life.
